Mexican traditions have now become part of the Easter holiday in most of Texas. Vendors all over the state sell pinatas and cascarones.

Cascarones are empty-colored egg shells filled with confetti. Once the kids find them in hiding, they will break them open on other kids' heads. The practice became popular after They became trendy in Mexico when Emperor Maximilian brought European cascarones to his wife.

Pinatas have become very popular for parties in Texas, both for young and old. The designs can be matched to any occasion or holiday and loaded with goodies for any age group. Who does not like being blindfolded and swinging at bat?
